Ancient Literature

Michèle Lowrie is Professor of Ancient Literature at the University of Chicago.

In her research, Michèle Lowrie is primarily concerned with Roman poets from the end of the Republic and the beginning of the Empire, such as Horace and Virgil. She has published several works on the subject, including Horace’s Narrative Odes (1997) and Writing, Performance, and Authority in Augustan Rome (2009). In her upcoming works, her focus will be on the idea of security in Rome, state violence during the collapse of the republic and the representation of law in Roman literature.
